As a lot as all of us emphasize not drafting a quarterback in Spherical 1 of Fantasy Soccer drafts, it is slightly surprising how a lot they matter in a given week. 

In case you began Kyler Murray, Patrick Mahomes, and even Jameis Winston this week, you most likely received. In case you began Matt Ryan or Aaron Rodgers your odds weren’t almost pretty much as good. And, fact be advised, when you drafted Josh Allen or Lamar Jackson in Spherical 3, they did not assist you a lot both. 

Whereas Ryan is straightforward to chop unfastened — he wasn’t even drafted in most of my leagues — Allen, Rodgers, and Jackson put Fantasy managers in a more durable spot. You possibly can’t minimize them. Significantly, do not. However their Week 1 performances did not actually make you wish to begin them both. For probably the most half, I am simply holding my nostril and ignoring Week 1. 

I presume Rodgers and all the Packers offense will get proper in primetime in opposition to the lowly Lions. I anticipate Jackson to play significantly better at house in opposition to the Chiefs in a far much less hostile surroundings. And whereas Allen has a tougher matchup, at Miami, he is nonetheless in my prime 5 as effectively. 

Sure, in the case of the elite quarterbacks I am principally simply ignoring their Week 1 struggles. Identical for one quarterback who will not be elite any longer. However you may have to take a look at my Week 1 streamers beneath to see who that’s.

Let’s get to the remainder of the preview:

Numbers to know

  • 20 — Go makes an attempt in Week 1 for Jameis Winston. I do not consider that is any extra predictive than his 5 passing touchdowns, however I do fear in regards to the Saints being run-heavy in Week 2 in opposition to Carolina. I wish to add Winston, however not begin him.
  • 57 — Go makes an attempt for Jared Goff in Week 1, solely Dak Prescott threw extra. 
  • 46 — Taylor Heinicke ran for 46 yards and a landing in opposition to Tampa Bay within the playoffs final 12 months. His mobility might make him a startable QB2.
  • 156.1 — Matthew Stafford’s quarterback score in his first sport with the Rams. No quarterback was higher in Week 1.
  • 5,852 — Dak Prescott has thrown for five,852 yards in his final 17 full video games.
  • 6 — Ryan Tannehill was sacked six instances in opposition to Arizona and fumbled twice. If the Titans cannot shield him in opposition to Seattle it is time to get involved.
  • 194 — Trevor Lawrence threw for 194 yards and two of his three touchdowns after the Texans had constructed a 34-7 lead in opposition to his Jaguars.
